Suppose you should wake up Christmas morning and find yourself to be the owner of a bicycle. It is a brand-new wheel and everything is in perfect working order.
The bearings are well oiled the nickel is bright and shiny and it is all tuned up and ready for use. If you are a careful sensible boy you can have fun with it for a long time until finally like the "One Hoss Shay" in the poem it wears out and goes to pieces all at once.
On the other hand if you are careless or indifferent or lazy you may allow the machine to get out of order or to become rusty from disuse or perhaps when a nut works loose you neglect it and have a breakdown on the road or you may forget to oil the bearings and in a short time they begin to squeak and wear.
If you are another kind of a boy you may be careful enough about oiling and cleaning the wheel but you may also be reckless and head-strong and will jump over curbstones and gutters or ride it over rough roads at a dangerous rate of speed and in this way shorten its life by abuse just as the careless boy may by neglect.
It is just so with the human body which after all is a machine too and more than that it is the most wonderful and perfect machine in the world. With care it should last many years. With abuse or neglect it may very soon wear out.
The boy who neglects his health is like the boy who allows the bearings on his wheel to become dry or the metal parts rusty. The chief difference is that when the bicycle wears out or breaks down we may replace the parts or even buy another machine but when our health is injured money will not restore it.
In order to keep well we must observe certain rules of health. By exercise we keep the working parts in good order. If we are lazy or indolent we are like the bicycle that is allowed to go to pieces from lack of use. If we are reckless and foolhardy we may injure some part of the delicate machinery from excessive exercise or strain.
Play is the most natural thing in the world but we must use judgment in our play. A boy or girl who is not allowed to play or who is restrained by too anxious parents is unhappy indeed. Nearly all animals play. We know for instance that puppies kittens and lambs are playful.
It is a perfectly natural instinct. By proper play we build up our bodies and train our minds. The healthy man never gets too old to play. He may not care to play marbles or roll hoops but he will find his pleasure in some game or sport like tennis golf horseback riding camping fishing or hunting.
In this book we shall talk about some forms of play and recreation that are not strictly confined to children but which we may still enjoy even after we have become grown men and women.
This ebook is about Play and Outdoor Lifestyle. It is a lifestyle that everyone should cultivate in order to live a long and happy life.
If we live a natural open-air life we shall have but little need of doctors or medicine. Many of our grandmothers‘ notions on how to keep well have changed in recent years.
Old-fashioned remedies made from roots and herbs have been almost completely replaced by better habits of life and common-sense ideas.
We used to believe that night air was largely responsible for fevers and colds. Doctors now say that one of the surest ways to keep well is to live and sleep in the open air.
In many modern houses the whole family is provided with outside sleeping porches with absolutely no protection from the outside air but the roof.
I have followed the practice of sleeping in the open air for some time and in midwinter without discomfort have had the temperature of my sleeping porch fall to six degrees below zero.
Of course it is foolish for any one to sleep exposed to rain or snow or to think that there is any benefit to be derived from being cold or uncomfortable.
The whole idea of open-air sleeping is to breathe pure fresh air in place of the atmosphere of a house which under the best conditions is full of dust and germs.
If we become outdoor sleepers coughs and colds will be almost unknown. General Sherman once wrote a letter in which he said that he did not have a case of cold in his entire army and he attributed it to the fact that his soldiers slept and lived in the open air.
One can almost tell a man who sleeps in the open by looking at him. His eye is clear and his cheek ruddy. There is no surer way to become well and strong than to become accustomed to this practice. Then you can laugh at the doctor and throw the medicine bottles away.
